A Better Society

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. – Leo Tolstoy

In order to have a better society, we need better citizens. You improve the community if you improve the individual.

If you want a better world, you first need to have better humans.

But how?

By adopting a worldview and way of life that holds life and nature as sacred, and that helps people develop moral character, lovingkindness, and compassion for all beings.

I am thinking of Buddhism, Daoism, Stoicism, Epicureanism, Existentialism, Confucianism, Humanism, Bodhidaoism, and Spiritual Naturalism.

We are old too soon, and wise too late! I am a philosopher, a pursuer of wisdom. I have spent my life seeking to know the truth and discover wisdom for living. I don't claim to be a wise man, just an old man. But I do think I have something to say that might help those interested in living a good life without the supernatural.
